HISTORY OF CHANNAHON

The first people known to have lived in the area are now known as the “MoundBuilders.” These Native Americans constructed mounds of earth to bury their dead. At one time mounds were found all around this area. These tribes suddenly disappeared around 500 AD in an archaeological mystery. The Potawatomi Indians were the last Native Americans to live in this area. A Native American village of more than 1000 inhabitants once stood where Channahon now stands. A Potawatomi chief named Boubonnais raced ponies here, right along where Route 6 runs today. Explorers Louis Jolliet and Father Jacques Marquette traveled through this area in 1673. After exploring the Mississippi River, members of the Illini tribe told them of a “short-cut” to return to Lake Michigan by following what is

now called the Illinois River. This river would lead them to a marshland called “checagou.” The majority of the Native Americans had been relocated to the west by the time the first settlers arrived in the 1830s. History shows a friendship developed between the settlers and the Pottawatomi. It has been said there was great sadness when they government forced the remaining Native Americans to move on. They received cash from the government for their land and reportedly gave $1000 to settler Seymour Treat to complete a gristmill on the island where he settled in 1833. In 1835 a Native American chief was buried on Treat’s Island. In 1832 the first white settlers paid $1.25 an acre for their land. Among the early settlers were Isaac Jessup, Wm. E. Peck, E. C. Fellows, H. D. Risely, Peter

McCowan, Capt. Willard, Michael Morehouse, Jedidiah, Walter, and E. G. Eames, Joseph N. Fryer, George Tryon, Uncle “Bont” Schermerhorn, and John Ward. In 1836 the I & M Canal was begun and Channahon became the site for two locks. The village was originally called DuPage. During the digging of the canal, the canal trustees wanted to name the town Swifton, after the canal board president. Through the influence of Judge Peck the town was called Channahon. When the village was organized, there were several businesses, four mercantile stores, one grocery, two blacksmith shops, one wagon shop, a hardware

store, two saloons, a hotel, an ice cream parlor, and a butcher shop. The Village of Channahon was originally incorporated in 1896. In 1907, the bridge over the DuPage River collapsed with an automobile on it. The driver of the auto planned to sue the village, but the question of the bridge’s ownership came up. The village fathers decided to discard the corporate charter to avoid the lawsuit. The village was again incorporated in 1962.

WELCOME TO MINOOKA MINOOKA VILLAGE STAFF: Village President: Ric Offerman Village Administrator: Dan Duffy Village Clerk: Orsola Evola Building & Zoning Officer: Steve Thornton Finance Director: John Harrington Chief of Police: Justin Meyer Fire Chief: Al Yancey, Jr. Public Works Director: Ryan Anderson

O

n behalf of the Village Board and employees, I welcome you to visit the Village of Minooka.

Dating back 152 years ago, Minooka was established along the Rock Island Railroad, just a couple miles north of the Illinois River. Home to many Native American Indian tribes, the area overlooks three separate counties of Grundy, Will, and Kendall. Minooka in Pottawatomie means “Good Land.” Just like our history, people have moved and settled in Minooka for the “good land” and good life! I have seen the Village of Minooka go through many changes over the years from grazing cattle and corn fields to modern residential subdivisions and business parks. Home to large fortune 500 industries like Grainger, Macys, BMW, and many more logistics centers, Minooka offers a friendly business environment with great proximity to Interstate 80 and 55. Together with our growing commercial sector, the Village offers a low diverse tax base for our business partners

as well as one of the lowest sales tax rates in the Chicagoland area! Coupled with a low crime rate, Minooka offers the rural urban life style, with a short drive away from Chicago amenities. For more on Minooka and our calendar of events, visit www.minooka.com. The Village Hall is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If you ever have a question or even a concern within the community, contact us or stop in. We are here to serve, so please feel free to email or call. Our goal as a community it to provide a safe, friendly community for our residents and offer opportunities for families to grow and thrive here. I’m always up for giving tours, so stop on by and see our “good land!” — Ric Offerman Village President

ALL VILLAGE MEETINGS

HISTORY OF MINOOKA

The Village of Minooka came into existence in 1852, when the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad came through the area on the recommendation of the surveyor, Ransom Gardner. Mr. Gardner had purchased 500 acres of land along the proposed route of the Rock Island Railroad. The Village of Minooka was incorporated on March 27, 1869. George Comerford, an Irish immigrant, is also credited for bringing the railroad to Minooka. His family bought land in Aux Sable Twp. and Mr. Comerford worked as a railroad surveyor. He was also involved in the actual construction of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Line and became the the Minooka depot’s first agent. Comerford was also instrumental in establishing a post office in 1853 and served as its postmaster for nine years. Dolly Smith, the wife of Gardner’s agent, Leander Smith, is credited with naming Minooka. Mrs. Smith, who was familiar with the Potowatomi language, named the town Minooka that means place of contentment or good earth. Prior to that time the railroad workers named the village Summit because it was the highest point in Illinois on the Rock Island line. It was also called “Anoka”

for a time. Mrs. Smith also named many of the streets in the old part of Minooka.

1860s saw a building boom in Minooka. In 1866, A. K. Knapp built a grain elevator. Early merchants included R. Gardner & Co.; a large department store that at one time employed a dozen people. There were grocery stores, saloons, blacksmith shops, boot and shoemakers, tin and copper smith, a meat market, plus more, enough to supply everyone’s needs.

Leander and Dolly Smith built a home on the northwest corner of Wabena and St. Mary’s streets. This home had a big bay window where in her later years, Mrs. Smith would reminisce about the beginnings of Minooka. The stories say that Chief Shabbona would often come on the train from Morris and they would sit and speak in Potowatomi about the “good old days.”

- By Three Rivers Public Library

In 1858, C. V. Hamilton built a number of buildings in Minooka. One was a hotel, Hamilton House. It stood on the southeast corner of Wapella and Wabena Streets until the early 1960s. The

HISTORY OF MORRIS In 1834, the very first log cabin was built at what is now Jefferson and Nettle streets. Eight years later, the Village of Morris was established. It later became a city. In 1839, villagers built the Shakey Bridge across Nettle Creek to attract stagecoach lines. By 1845, daily mail was being delivered. With the opening of the I&M Canal in 1848, and the first steam train railroad in 1853, Morris continued to grow and prosper. In 1673, Canadian fur trader, Louis Jolliet, and Jesuit missionary, Father Jacque Marquette, passed through the Illinois River Valley. Jolliet envisioned a canal from the Illinois River to Lake Michigan that would connect the Atlantic with the Mississippi River. One hundred sixty-three years later his dream became a reality when construction began on the I&M Canal. The first map of this area shows a village of 1,500 Mound Builders that were located near the present site of Morris. Construction of the canal in the 1840s uncovered several artifacts and skeletons at the mounds. Believed to be over 300 years old, the oldest monument in Morris is the Red Cedar Pole that once stood in the center of a mound on Wauponsee Street. Since red cedar does not naturally grow in Illinois, its origin is a mystery. The Illini (“Superior Men”) tribes were the first

government grants, began in 1836. The 96-mile length took 12 years to complete. Beginning in Chicago and ending in LaSalle, it was the first link between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. Immediately, grain prices tripled as this became the primary mode of transportation for farmers. Five years later, the influence of the canal was replaced by the train and Morris grew to the north near the tracks. The last boat passed through in 1914. inhabitants that the French explorers encountered on the expedition across this area. Chief to a tribe of Potawatomi by marriage, Shabbona was nicknamed “a friend to the White Man” when he helped save the lives of settlers during the Black Hawk War of 1832. Wauponsee, another Potawatomi Chief, was also helpful to the first settlers. His name meant “Bright Place in the Sky.” The oldest section of town, Court House Square, was established in 1843. There have been countless celebrations on the lawn as well as the first execution – a hanging – for a murder in 1890. Three court houses have been built there. The I&M Canal was one of Morris’ greatest assets in its early growing years. Construction, funded by

On January 5, 1853, the first steam train pulled into Morris, an event the whole town came to witness. The Chicago-Rock Island Railroad soon became the most economical transportation for coal, grain, and passengers and eventually caused the demise of the I&M Canal. By 1877, Morris was a prosperous town. The Chicago, Ottawa, and Peoria Electric Railway came in 1910 and a line was installed in 1913 down Liberty Street. In-town rides cost 5 cents. State highways brought an end to the Interurban in 1934. The 1911 Morris depot, on the southeast corner of Benton and Liberty streets, today houses the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

WELCOME TO COAL CITY

COAL CITY VILLAGE STAFF: Mayor: Terry Halliday Village Administrator: Matt Fritz Treasurer: Kristi Wickiser Village Clerk: Pamela Noffsinger Public Works Superintendent: Darrell Olson Chief of Police: Chris Harseim Fire Chief: James Seerup

T

he Village Board and I would like to invite you to join the growing community of people who have discovered Coal City as a great place to live, work, and relax. Coal City prides itself on maintaining a full service community. Residents and businesses have access to the educational and recreational services of an award winning school district, the Coal City Public Library District, and two community parks and athletic fields. The Village operates its’ own municipally-owned water and wastewater utilities allowing local control of costs and expansions. Public safety services are provided by the Coal City Police Department and the Coal City Fire Protection District. Business development has been an important part of the Coal City community for over 100 years. Area mining activity in the late 19th Century spurred the need for a cohesive community where residents could access services and business could utilize common resources, so Coal City was founded in 1881. The Village Board and I have taken steps to continue this tradition of meeting the needs of existing businesses and nourishing business retention and expansion. The Village Board and I have implemented many tools to attract and nourish business. We are especially proud of the completely revitalized Coal City downtown area due to the investment of millions of dollars to reconstruct the entire right of way within South Broadway. From the resurfacing efforts on the portions of Broadway south of the BNSF railroad crossing to the complete restoration from the tracks to State Route 113, this large scale rejuvenation expresses the vibrancy of the community to anyone who drives

VILLAGE BOARD

through our community. New businesses may want to take advantage of the opportunities presented by our Tax Increment Finance (TIF) District. Also, Coal City is included in the Ottawa Enterprise Zone approved by the State of Illinois. Enterprise Zones provide many financial incentives for new business construction. In addition, there is a business group who meets and organizes joint promotional opportunities to assist the sales of area retail stores. The Village of Coal City understands the importance of local infrastructure. The renewal evident from a stroll along the Broadway business corridor occurs throughout the entire village. Municipal ownership of water and sewer utilities provides “one-stop shopping” and streamlined project approvals as well as local rate control, and ensures one’s utility payments are used to improve local services. Village authorities understand the importance of the transportation network. Coal City has an ongoing capital program to maintain and upgrade local streets and stormwater systems. With its easy access to major state and interstate transportation routes and State Route 113 bisecting the Village providing direct access to the I-55 interchange less than five miles away, many visitors experience the welcoming spirit of our residents – thanks for being a guest today. And I hope you can return soon and get some more time to spend in our hometown. — Terry Halliday Mayor, Village of Coal City

HISTORY OF COAL CITY Coal City was settled in the mid-1800s, along with local neighbors South Wilmington, Braidwood, Godley, Carbon Hill, and Diamond. The village began because of the coal mines. Local blacksmiths used the coal, and farmers added it to ears of corn that were burned for heat and energy. Consisting of sunken mines, a population of 900 and two buildings, the village incorporated on August 17, 1881. Beginning in the 1920s and completed within the next decade, the Opera House joined the village’s downtown facades along Broadway. In the 1940s, Coal City, Streator and Mazon residents enjoyed hopping on the “Doodlebug,” a daily passenger train to and from Joliet. With just over 5,000 residents, Coal City continues to be a place to learn, live, play, grow, and enjoy. Residents in the newer subdivisions such as Richards Crossing and Spring Meadows have discovered a community with low property taxes and an award-winning school district, with ISAT scores that exceed state averages, and state championship athletics. Students from Coal City, Diamond, Carbon Hill and Goose Lake attend one community unit school district, that includes an early learning center, elementary, intermediate, middle and high schools.

Oakbrook’s regional malls, visit downtown Chicago’s museums, sports and arts, while enjoying a relaxing, small town way of life. Recreation is at the heart of the community. The chain of lakes, created from reclaimed mines along Coal City’s northern border, offers camping, fishing and boating. The nearby Kankakee and Des Plaines rivers offer additional activities, including horseback riding.

Farmers’ Market Saturdays 8:00am - 1:00pm

Because of these opportunities, growth has been inevitable. Coal City’s Comprehensive Plan controls growth, while ensuring the village enjoys the opportunities that come from commercial establishments, restaurants, businesses, and manufacturing.

We are very pleased that you are interested in learning more about our Village. Diamond’s unique character is rooted in its 126year history – a history full of bright people and fascinating tales. Back then, newly discovered mines in the area offered opportunities for employment and one of those areas which began to grow was Diamond, located about 54 miles southwest of Chicago.

Throughout the years Diamond has seen continued growth and improvement. The current Board has focused its attention on attracting economic development and improving infrastructure. With that in mind, the Village established the Diamond I-55 Corridor TIF District in the Will County portion of our community and the Diamond Enterprise Zone located in both the Will and Grundy County portions of our community. In 2019, we welcomed the completion of the Morris Hospital Diamond-Coal City Campus which offers a variety of medical services including immediate care, imaging, lab work, physical therapy, occupational health, family and specialty physicians. In 2020 we welcomed the Diamond Indoor Trap Range, home of the Diamond Clay Terminators Jr. Gold State Champions, which offers recreational and competitive trap shooting, a first of its kind in the country!

A public/private partnership is also being utilized to install a signal at Will Road and IL 113.

Our residents enjoy the quaint, small-town atmosphere, along with a great school district, convenient shopping, services, churches, nearby beautiful state parks and recreational opportunities, as well as low taxes and a low crime rate, while still having all the offerings of urban life a short drive away.

HISTORY OF DIAMOND The Village of Diamond is located in Grundy County and Will County, 52 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop, just south of I-80 along the I-55 Corridor. The Village was named after the coal synonym “black diamond” due to the sparkle from the sunlight on the rich black coal. The area attracted coal miners in the early 1870s and on February 16, 1883 tragedy struck when a mine shaft flooded, killing 74 men and boys. A monument still stands in Diamond on IL 113 memorializing the event. Incorporated in 1895, the Village nearly disappeared after coal mining ended in the early 1900s. The Village reincorporated in 1949 and had a population of 1,393 by the end of the century. Today more than 2,500 people call it home. Diamond students attend the award-winning Coal City Community Unit School District #1, which offers an early childhood learning center, elementary, intermediate, middle and high schools. District 1 ISAT scores routinely exceed state averages, and its athletic programs have won state championships. Shopping, services and activities are abundant

between the Village of Diamond and neighboring communities – Wilmington, Coal City, Carbon Hill and Braidwood – all within 15 minutes. They include churches, grocery stores, dollar stores, drug stores, libraries, post offices, banks, child care, beauty salons, auto repair, florists, dance studios, fitness centers, restaurants of all kinds, gas stations, health care providers, dental offices, physical therapy, movie theater, bowling alley, roller skating rink, golf courses, and parks. Private clubs offer camping, fishing, boating and swimming. The nearby Kankakee and Des Plaines Rivers also offer a wealth of recreational activities.

WELCOME TO CARBON HILL

N

estled between Morris and Coal City, our neat homes and friendly faces will welcome you. Bike through our area, play ball in our fields, and come celebrate our annual homecoming in June. We boast good food, good times, crafts, parade, athletic events and hometown camaraderie. Good schools, nearby city access, and charming homes make our city yours.

A Brief History of Carbon Hill Situated in Felix Township, Carbon Hill was surveyed and platted in June, 1891, by Streator’s Star Coal Company, and organized, January 25, 1892. The village had a population of 1,800 and Robert Fleming became its first president. The original buildings near the EJ&E roundhouse were south of Rathburn Street, in an area called Runcie’s addition. During later mining strikes, the area was dubbed Bunker Hill. Prior to incorporation, Carbon Hill was a coal mining camp known as Scotch Hill. In 1900, four coal mines operated around and under the village and the population hovered near 2,000 with Scotch, Welsh, English, Irish, Italian, Austrian, Slovenian, as well as African

American mining families. Families concentrated in their own neighborhoods and the men met in the dozens of saloons to socialize in their native tongues. The town’s bakeries provided a pleasant aroma in the morning. Many evenings, the town band performed in the park’s bandstand. Soccer and Bocce were the prominent sports. Wooden sidewalks and gas lights enhanced a business district which included stores, a post office, meat market, opera hall, hotel, livery stable and blacksmith shop. There was the Carbon Hill Athletic Club, a doctor’s office, fire house, beer house, the depot and roundhouse. Backyards held grape arbors, root cellars, chicken coops and wells. The local school opened in September, 1893 and closed in 1955. The town remains familiar and friendly, maintaining its own identity and government. Citizens pay taxes to the Coal City library, fire, and school districts, and the village purchases its water supply from nearby Coal City. The former Carbon Hill school serves as a local public museum. The coal company gifted the community park to the village. Thus our well maintained park has been used for family reunions, picnics, ball games, and various fundraisers for over 100 years.

FROM YOUR DOOR TO OURS

CARBON HILL SCHOOL The 1893 schoolhouse displays original artifacts depicting turn-of-the-century immigrant and community life. Items include the jailhouse’s iron doors, soccer trophies, bocce balls, mining tools, furniture, household items, coal reports, maps, plats and plenty of family memories. The north room represents the coal fields of Grundy and Will Counties. The south classroom, with desks, old books and photos, depicts our school history. There’s also local memorabilia, kitchen, bedroom and store displays, and a diorama of Carbon Hill in it’s heyday, circa 1900.

WELCOME TO BRACEVILLE

L

ocated in the southeast corner of Grundy County and the southwest corner of Will County, the Village of Braceville was once a thriving city with 3,500 residents at its height in the 1870s. By the late 1880s the town sported six general merchandise stores, two banks, a hotel, two restaurants, and 18 other retail businesses. At that time the Village also included an opera house and large frame school. In the summer of 1910, the miners of Braceville Coal Company went on strike, and the company decided to close its doors permanently.

Today, Braceville has approximately 800 residents and is home to the Mazonia Fish & Wildlife Area. The children attend Braceville Elementary School District 75 and Gardner-South Wilmington Community High School District 73. The thriving United Methodist Church offers after school and youth programs. As part of the historical Route 66 journey, we participate in the Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor each May. Many travelers have stopped to learn about Braceville’s history as presented by lifelong resident, Alice Creech.

The Supervisor of Assessments is concerned with value and does not collect taxes, calculate taxes or determine the tax rate. Taxing jurisdictions such as schools, cities, and townships, adopt budgets which determine the tax levy. The actual dollar amount of your tax bill is determined by how much money these local agencies need to operate. Every dollar of property tax remains in the local area to fund local government.

SHOP LOCAL Grundy County is a unique mix of people, places and products. By choosing to support locallyowned businesses, you help maintain our community’s unique mix. Your dollars spent in locallyowned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development. So before you leave town and hit up a mall, check your local stores. Even if you don’t immediately see something specific you are looking for, ask the shop owner or manager. The beauty part about dealing with a local business is they might be able to get in exactly what you’re looking for or help you to find it. And the next time you come in, they will remember you and welcome you with open arms. Remember too that when you shop local, others will follow. When you find the perfect birthday gift and tell the recipient you got it at a local retailer, the next time they are in need of a gift they will remember your referral!

To encourage shopping local, the Chamber has a Chamber Gift Certificate program that can be used anytime throughout the year and for a variety of purposes. Unlike a gift certificate from a single location, the Chamber Gift Certificates provide the recipient with numerous choices as to where they can redeem it. At the same time, these dollars then remain in the Grundy County region and contribute to local sales tax dollars that provide critical services in Grundy County, such as fire and police protection and street improvements. A Chamber Gift Certificate can be redeemed at hundreds of businesses (a list is provided with every gift certificate purchase). So whether it’s a Christmas gift, a client thank you gift, or an employee incentive, think local and consider a Chamber Gift Certificate.

Family Fest 2021 was another great event in the books for the Grundy County Chamber, despite some crazy weather and COVID-19 restrictions. What was originally planned to be an outside event for safety protocols for COVID-19 had to quickly be brought indoors due to predicted severe weather. Our vendors and volunteers stepped up to help us make the changes and this annual event was again a hit! Family Fest is typically held every February, but was moved to June this year to accommodate COVID-19 restrictions. Thanks to sponsors CPV Three Rivers Energy Center and The Stenger Devermann Group at Morgan Stanley we again were able to keep this event free for families to attend. From a reptile show to balloon swords – there were plenty of kids’ activities thanks to event sponsors Exelon Generation-Dresden Station and D’Arcy Motors, and performance area sponsors Morris National Bank, Alden Estates of Shorewood, Heartland Bank and Great Water USA. As the kids were entertained the adults learned all about what Grundy County has to offer through the more than 50 vendors on-hand for the business expo. Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, and attendees for another great Family Fest! We look forward to Family Fest 2022- visit grundychamber.com for more details.

hree Rivers Library remains a constant for the community, even during a global pandemic! Although both library buildings were closed for a portion of the spring, library services never shut down. Library staff worked to beef up our online library, from databases and eBooks available to our cardholders to virtual programs for all ages. Curbside pickup of materials and prints was instituted to help meet the needs of those who required or preferred physical materials, and our bookdrops remained open the entire time for patrons to return materials. Our wonderful, dedicated staff even still managed to run our Summer Reading Program virtually! Visit our website at www.trpld.org to see all of our bountiful online resources. Check out our physical collections – in addition to books, library patrons can walk out with magazines, audiobooks, music CD’s, DVD’s, graphic novels, eReaders, personal-sized scanners and even a mobile hotspot to provide internet access anytime, anywhere! While at the library, you can also use our computers, make copies, scan or fax documents, use our free wifi, or have documents notarized (by appointment only). While we don’t know what the future holds for us, please know that Three Rivers remains committed to serving our community to the best of our abilities, to remain a trusted resource for information, and promote the health, safety and well-being of Channahon and Minooka.

CHAMBER GIFT CERTIFICATES

G

rundy County Chamber Gift Certificates can be used anytime throughout the year and can be given for a variety of purposes! Chamber Gift Certificates are one more way that recipients can shop local since certificates spent stay local and generate sales tax dollars for our communities. Unlike a gift certificate from a single location, Chamber Gift Certificates provide the recipient with many choices as to where they can be redeemed.

STRUGGLING FOR THE PERFECT GIFT? NEED A GIFT CERTIFICATE? Grundy County Chamber Gift Certificates can be used at more than 500 area businesses and guarantee your money stays local.

It’s an easy and convenient way to provide a gift or reward of choice. These checks can be purchased in any denomination of $5 or more and are redeemable at all Grundy County Chamber members. So the recipient can spend their certificate at a local restaurant, retailer or service provider. Each certificate comes with the list of places they can be redeemed – and with the popularity of the program, new members are being added everyday!

Order a gift certificate by scanning the QR code at left with a smartphone or by visiting
